Here is a video on youtube someone put up showing the stopping distances compared to stock:

That's pretty impressive.

Looks like a killer brake kit. Wish the calipers were aluminum.

Incorrect. They have a kit that fits 17" wheels - just not the OEM 17" wheels.

But what if I like my OEM wheels?

Not sure how to answer that. It could be that the R1 would fit under the OEM wheels with spacers - you need spacers with the Alcons as well with the OEM wheels.

I love the kit, but this is so far from right that you're beyond wrong

BBKs don't necessarily help you stop shorter, hell half the time the stopping distance on the 1st panic stop is longer by a few feet vs OEM ... that's not their purpose

Don't worry about it. I'm actually not that attached to the OEM's . But Honestly I'm leaning towards the Alcon's. I'm just not a fan of their finish. For the price they could look a little better. The red looks good, but at least paint your company name so it stands out.


Also another question, would all the factory sensors still work with the change to Alcon's or another BBK? I'm talking about the brake pad wear sensors and other miscellany??
